School Salad Bars
A salad bar at school means kids have the choice of fresh vegetables and fruit for lunch 175 days each year.
Through key partnerships, we developed the Let’s Move Salad Bars to Schools grant program, which has already raised $6 million and delivered thousands of salad bars, serving more than a million children.
Kids with access to a salad bar in the school cafeteria not only put more fruits and veggies on their plates, they actually eat them! The CDC reports that kids with access to a salad bar consume three times more fruits and vegetables.
Salad Bar Economics
Salad bars are a viable component of a federally reimbursed school lunch. The cost for one freestanding, mobile salad bar grant is $3,147. This includes everything a school needs to get started: the bar, chill pads, pans and tongs. Each salad bar can serve a school for 10 years, which makes it incredibly cost effective!
